Remember

Remember when you were little and your family all seemed to be normal.

Remember when there was no drama.

Remember when everyone got along.

Remember thinking man how did I get so lucky that I have the normal family no skeltons in the closet here.

Remember, keep remembering because as you grow older stuff comes out people's true colors show.

Remember all those times you spent at your grandparents house, those moments are so precious.

Remember when grandpa would tell stories about sailing with Columbus, remember that well because he told those stories to see your smile.

Remember the smell of that chewing tobacco because it will forever remind you of him.

Remember Grandma always being so concerned that everyone else was taken care of, because some day she might need a little help and that is ok. That really is ok, because those memories those moments are what you will share with your own kids so that they can remember too.

Remember your family even if there are skeltons in your closet because they are who made you who you are today, they inspired you to be better whether they meant to or not.

  1. Ohhhh this is good, really good. You're so right - we are who we are...skeletons and all....and God can use us all, the good, the bad, and the ugly in us all. Thanks for the reminder.
